wild journeys ( 3 X 60' )
This new series features Ireland's most heroic wildlife travellers and the incredible journeys they carry out every single year. From the 20,000km flown annually by the Manx Shearwaters to the transatlantic voyage of our eels and salmon, Wild Journeys follows these voyagers to the ends of the earth, showing the extraordinary challenges they meet and revealing the magnificent landscapes they visit en-route.
The series publicises the vital work of scientists as they tag and track the animals across the globe and reveals the amazing network of wildlife that links all life across the continents; how global warming directly affects our Barnacle Geese as they struggle to cope with a rapidly changing Arctic and the extraordinary distances covered by our marine animals.
Filmed over two years this series engages some of our most passionate naturalists who have daily contact with the natural world, from wildlife rangers and researchers to farmers, fishermen and wildlife enthusiasts. With a world-class wildlife production team and filmed in High Definition, Wild Journeys will delight, entertain and inform at every turn.
